Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I received this from a Marine comrade via email today:

     
  2. Well done that man!
     
  3. Very inspiring.
     
  4. Awe inspiring!

    Yet another shining example of selfless action under dangerous circumstances.
     
  5. It would be even better if (with the precision and strength implicit in robotics) he could sort out that awful beret, and get it into some kinda decent shape . . .

  6. Well done to him! Out of interest, why are Rangers wearing beige berets now? Seen them a few times but I'm sure 75th Ranger regt used to be black. Trying to copy the SAS (it never harmed Delta)?
     
  7. Sorry for the delayed response:

    When the entire Army adopted the black beret (theretofore the headgear of the Ranger units), a dust-up occurred among the units what already wore berets (airborne-/maroon ;special forces--green and Ranger units black).

    They felt they felt entitled to keep their distinctive headgear except the Rangers who adopted the tab.
